    Lasting Friendships

    The only real lasting friendship I have is with my boyfriend.  I can tell anything to him , be myself in front of him , and always know he is there for me.  My "friends"  all left me either when I had my kids or once I got into the Juggalette lifestyle.

    Didn't Last Forever

    I always wished for a long lasting friendship. I had one but it only lasted for eight years until she died. It was one of the hardest time for me. No one can replace her but I do hope I find another friend as her.

    Will I Ever Achieve That???

    So, I want friends who would never leave me under any circumstances unless they are dead. Is it too much to ask for? I don't think so.

    Meh..

    I've never had a friendship that lasted any longer than 2-4 years. We'd meet and be 'besties forever' until we went to seperate schools and completely stopped talking. I've always lost people like that. It used to be a sad goodbye, but now I expect it. It's happened before and I...
